The best teachers, do.

So we’re going to Mexico.

My dude, my baby and me.  We leave in less than three weeks, and we’ll be gone for 7 days.

Many people will read this and say, “Oh, I’m so jealous!” and “You’re so lucky!” and “I wish I was going!”

But someone out there, somewhere out there, will understand when I say, I have some apprehension.

Let’s just say it people: When you’ve had a baby, and you haven’t had time to eat a proper meal or get a decent night’s sleep let alone get a workout routine going and at the same time you’ve eaten a years worth of Coffee Crisps in the last week because it was raining on Halloween so you have a lot of candy leftover, the last thing you want to think about is putting on a bathing suit.

But I will.  I will put on a bathing suit, and a pair of flip flops, and a big floppy hat, and I will get my I-just-had-a-baby-five-months-ago ass to Mexico, because the only way I’m going to teach my kid to be comfortable in her skin is to be comfortable in my own.  The only way I’m going to teach her to own it is if I own it.  She’s still a little young, but that just means I have more time to learn the lessons myself before I really have to give them.

And so off we go.  To Mexico.

And really – this isn’t going to be so bad…

  1. I guess I had better pack a bathing suit for my trip to Florida – I hope no weather patterns that cause havoc affect either of our trips. How much can I lose in two weeks??? Just kidding 🙂 I have no excuse like a baby and leftover chocolate, so may be I will start with a walk today. I’m not sure why I can’t just “get up and go”. I was never like that. Wonder what happens to women when they are nearing 60. Anyways, I will leave my desk and walk today. Not because I want to fit into a bikini or anything like that, but just because.

  2. I’m glad you’re thinking about being a good role model for Amira when she’s older. But remember, you’re also a role model/mothership to 8 or so of your younger girl cousins right now. So put on that bathing suit and rock your hot post baby body!!!

    P.S. I have an awesome blue and white stripey floppy hat you can borrow 🙂

  3. You’re going to rock it girl. On the inside you may be wondering what others around you are thinking but let me solve the mystery for you, they’re all thinking “wow, that hot chick looks that amazing in a bathing suit AND she just had that little baby she’s carrying around? No way, no possible, that baby must be adopted.” So it’s okay, put on that bathing suit…no one will be nearly as hard on you as you will be on yourself!

    • They might think she’s adopted, but not because of how I look. A lady at the grocery store last week said to me (not asked me): “Her father is WHITE.” Uh, thanks lady. But I will wear my bathing suit, and I will rock it!
